it would have been called. >> reporter: an instant cbs news poll chose romney the overwhelming winner. 46% of the people we surveyed said romney won the debate. but moderator and pbs anchor jim lehrer might not feel the same way. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i love big bird. i actually like you, too. but i'm not going to keep on spending money for things we have to borrow money from china to pay for. >> reporter: they will square off again october 16. the vice-presidential candidates will soon get their chance. their first and only debate is set for next thursday. in denver, i'm bigad shaban. now back to you. >> thank you. >>> well, trending now on social media, the comment that romney would fire big bird. it gained 25,000 followers on twitter overnight. less than 30 minutes ago, he thanks governor romney for making his account so popular so a little bit of fun there. president obama and mitt romney weigh in on the issues in an exclusive presidential for trum on cbssf.com. today's issue much like last night, the econ
the media to announce breaking news of the coverup and the results are in. cbs didn't lead with the coverup they never mentioned it in the broadcast. not a word. hey, scotty, axelrod on line one. he said thanks. nbc, the bastion of journalism led with the biggest news story since watergatesa. vanna, sweetie, how do you become a serious journalist ignoring news like this? on abc, george stephanopoulos led with story on cyber attack. others did good reporting later in the block on libya. any questions the main street is as biased as the day in long? greg, that do you think? >> greg: it is amazing what you can get away with, when the media is in the tank for you. obama could actually give alaska to russia. by day two, the "new york times" editorial board will report on ann romney's horse. you are asking a network to report on a scandal about obama is asking them to narc on themselves. >> bob: sarah palin know about that trade? >> greg: you are terrible. my point is asking a member of a gang to narc on a member. >> eric: this a big story or not >> bob: it is a big story. but you jumped all over
romney won the contest. just 25 percent said president obama did. a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters who watched the debate was interesting. 46% of them say mitt romney won. 22% believe the president came out on top. 32% say it was a tie. so, it was a good night for governor romney indeed. now, what does this mean going forward? number one, the romney campaign is energized. it will be easier to raise money. number two, the president's attack ads on television against romney not going to be taken as seriously because the folks have seen the governor definite himself effectively. number three, president obama will lose some steam in the polls, and with the adoring media. but, and this is big: mr. obama will come back hard on october 16th. you can count on that. governor romney has to, again, be on his game. two more things. from the very beginning of the campaign, i said the debates will tell the tale. >> bill: what mitt romney absolutely has to do, if he hopes to defeat president obama is win the three debates. now, we have seen the governor debate well and we have seen him get his bu
to approach them with a lot of skepticism. in ohio last week, we had cbs/"new york times" poll saying ten points for obama. and a columbus dispatch poll saying nine points. frank newport the head of the gallup organization had a blog posting that was revealing. he said you have to subject the state polls to the judgment of experience. he said for example, take ohio. the president won there by less than five points last time around. this time around, the poll that said he is winning by ten, does it make sense he would do twice as well, the margin is twice as big this time around than it was in 2008 when everybody is pointing to closer election than in 2008. of course not. it doesn't make sense. take this with the nevada and ohio shifts because of outlier polls. p.p.p. interestingly enough had a poll that was the outlier in nevada, plus nine for obama. then two polls in ohio. as a result they move it across the line from tossup to lean obama. i would say this, though. step back just a little bit and look at the arch since april. president obama has gone from 220 solid states, electoral coll
done. >> greta: any advice for congressman paul ryan? you tweeted today, you retweeted a cbs news, biden praises obama's debate performance. ure added, will joe giff a repeat of that wonderful performance, chicould sense the sarcasm? any advice for congressman paul ryan going into the vice-presidential debate next week? >> well, maybe we ought to start out by the latest gaffe of the gift that keeps on giving, who is a heartbeat away from the presidency, that the american people have been buried -- middle class of america has been buried the last four years. i agree, joe. [chuckles] >> that's where we could start. seriously, gret ai think that paul ryan may not be the most colorful individual, but any number of congress, he knows the issues, he knows them backwards and forwards. i believe it's very likely that on knowledge alone and presentation, which paul has made many times, that he doll well. my job is to lower expectations, he will never be as good as joe biden. but i am going to take a little different approach. i think that paul ryan is going to do very well. i would not ast
and said they lean left, they did in 2008 and they're doing it again. >> dana: reuters and cb s news have followed up on the story. if you look at the editorial pages today. >> greg: "usa today." when "usa today" calls you out on a story is a protester calling you out on hygiene. >> eric: they're 20 days late, though. my biggest problem is within a couple of days the guy from the national counterterror said, i think he said look, it looks like terrorism. a couple of days, ambassador rice talking to david gregory and candy crowley and bob schieffer and george stephanopoulos and not one of them pushed back and said what about it? what about the other people saying terrorism? where are you? how can you blame the movie? main stream media is complicit in this tragedy. can i say one point. jon stewart last night jumped on board and is calling the main stream media out. about time you get on board, too. >> greg: bob? you can talk as long as you want. >> bob: i don't want to talk. in your monologue you said they are out to get the american people and to protect america's enemies. strong statement
this amazing reaction. cbs polled 56% of americans saying that their opinion of romney changed for the better. that's half of america because all they've known of him is what the negative obama ads and the main stream media, which is sort of a redundant city, has been saying about him. >> bret: i want to play another exchange between president obama and governor romney's response where president obama is talking about tax policy in these i understand penitentiary studies about -- independent studies about raising taxes on middle income families. >> that's why i understand penitentiary studies looking at this said the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit or not adding to the deficit is by burdening middle class families -- >> i got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> bret: it went really point by point, every time the president came at him, he went back not only with specifics while the obama campaign says there were not specifics in his answers on the tax
to say our colleagues here at abc news, award winning for journalism. and congratulations to pbs, cbs, cnn and nbc. and stephen, thank you. >> thank you very much. much respect to everybody here. this is way harder than i thought. >> it's great to have you this morning. have a great day, everyone. i moved to new york to work in fashion. so i had to look the part. t.j.maxx is such a great place cause i know when i go in there, i'm gonna score. they've got such great deals on all my favorite brands. fashion direct from designers. savings direct to you. t.j.maxx. starting at $6.99. our tri-tip with hand-breaded onion straws, our crispy shrimp smothered in bang bang sauce, and tuscan chicken on focaccia. sizzler. >>> good morning i'm kristen sze. a's can win division title if they beat the rangers tonight and tomorrow a's in the playoffs for the first time since 2006. they clinched a wild card spot last night after their 4-3 victory. another great night at the coliseum. >> hopefully the team stays as hot as the temperatures 78 at 7:05, 68 by the end of the game. 13 in san francisco, 20 in
people, our polls, the cbs poll, our by three to one showed that the president lost and romney won. >> well, you know what the history is here of the first debate against an incumbent president, five out of the last six times the challenger was perceived as winning. the first time you're on stage next to the president of the united states it adds stature. we haven't seen any fundamental shift in the dynamic of this race. it's been close and competitive for a year and a half. it will be won in key states. that's where the president is today in denver, in wisconsin, making his case about the economic choice in this election. >> i thought romney was pretty effective in turning around what could have been a liability into an asset last night on the whole issue of health care reform. listen to this. watch this. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i liked the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact, when massachusetts did somethin
. >> you have seen coverups before. but this is worst cover-up i have seen in my life. with cbs and fox news and they are into benghazi. to find the guy's journal, it hasn't been secured yet. where was the security around him? >> you are jumping around now? let's take the f.b.i.'s presence in benghazi. why is the f.b.i. the lead agency in the investigation. sn when they investigate generally speaking they are trying to solve a crime. they are cops trying to solve a crime. this wasn't a crime. this was an act of war. this was an act of terrorism. this is something for the defense intelligence and c.i.a. to be investigating. >> now we know they labeled it an act of terror within 24 hours so. for the better part of last two and a half weeks it wasn't terror. >>> clearly when the u.n. ambassador susan rice spoke on the sunday talk shows they could not have known that this was an act of terror by that point. now, there may have been some simultaneous riffraff anarchy elements going on there, but there was definitely concerted as senator john mccain suggests, coordinated military attack with
to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to them. >> polling is very good at saying how you're going to vote. it's very bad at saying who's going to vote. >> these two polls today are designed to convince everybody this election is over. >> we should note that fox news's own polls have been pretty much in line with everyone else's, but it's not just observers making the claim the polls are rigged. the romney campaign itself is now getting in on the act. >
university "new york times" cbs news poll shows obama leading in ohio, florida and pennsylvania. it matches our own marist polling which shows the president leading in all nine swing states. joining me now, peter brown, the assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling institute. peter, i want to ask you about historically speaking have the polls been largely accurate? >> yes. the polls have been quite accurate over time. now, everybody likes to point to the 1948 election when the polls said that thomas dewey would win the election and he didn't. harry truman did. that was 40 years ago when polling was in its infancy. polls are very good at telling you what the situation is at the time they're taken, not a week from thursday, not two months from tomorrow. they're good for then. >> that snapshot, right. some of the gop complain the pollsters are oversampling democrats in the swing states. are they overestimating democratic turnout for november? can you explain how this works? >> sure. the key is that we and most of the other major polls do not weight by party. that is, there is no
: according to a cbs news poll last night, about half say romney won. but michelle, 56% say that their opinion of romney changed for the better. only 13% say their opinion of mr. obama changed for the better. in the meantime, you know what? president obama showed that he was a little thin skinned last night and, in fact, told the moderator how to do his job, but first before we see that, let's see mitt romney on the tear last night. >> i don't want to cost jobs. my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates, lower deductions and exemptions, the same idea behind bowles simpson. get the rates down, to create more jobs because there is nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget than have more people working, earning more money, paying more taxes. that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> jim, you may want to move on to another topic. >> steve: up with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had noth
different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you, they're not pushing back on these ohio polls. they know they are down. how far? are they five down? si
